Activity description

This winter, climb up the summits and ridges of the Pyrenees with a new activity that will allow you to escape ever further into the wilderness of the mountain...

This day is more suited for people with good skiing skills who want to discover ski touring. You will explore the mountain differently and escape to find the most remote places while still enjoying good rides down backcountry slopes.

This outing is rather sporty. It's the price to pay to access wild and peaceful areas, far from the mechanical installations.
You will learn the basics of ski touring and have the chance to go skiing off-piste safely.

Possible itineraries
